One of my favorite reasons to make homemade beauty products is because I know exactly what I am putting on my skin and my families skin. Not to mention that the cost of creating a whole bulk load of them is pennies compared to buying just a bar in some places. These homemade lotion bars that I am sharing today are made with simple ingredients, just 3 to be exact.
Essential Oil (optional)
- Combine all ingredients (equal parts) in a saucepan and heat until melted. If you are just using a small silicone ice tray you will only need approximately 1/2 cup of each product. However, if you are creating larger bars then you will want to use at least 1 cup per product.
- Remove from heat and add the essential oils at this time, stirring well. This step is optional. I really love jasmine but you can add anything you like.
- Carefully pour into molds. I used a fun flip flops mold and poured my extra into a muffin pan. You can use whatever mold you have on hand or pour into a baking pan and cut them into bars.
- Allow the lotion bars to cool completely before popping out of the molds.
